Hypnotherapy offers a brief effective therapy that could be used to pick up the shortfall in local government services.

New statistics reported recently by the BBC shows that thousands of teenagers in England are being denied access to free mental health care because of a reduction in local authority funding. Figures from the Young Minds charity show that of the 51 local authorities that responded to the survey, 34 revealed they had cut their budget since 2010.

The findings show that even though NHS spending has remained the same, cuts by local government mean services such as psychotherapy and advice phone lines for young adults and teenagers are being withdrawn. This means that mental health issues such as anger, anxiety and depression issues are not being dealt with, leaving some teenagers without help.

Anxiety can affect millions of teenagers and whilst counselling can help, complementary approaches like hypnotherapy can also be useful. The problem for local authorities and GP’s alike is ‘Does hypnotherapy work?’. Even though a recent ruling from the ASA, that reviewed the evidence on hypnotherapy for anxiety presented by a London Hospital, has stated that there is evidence that hypnotherapy can help relieve anxiety, they are still reluctant to refer patients for hypnotherapy.

Paul Howard, Institute Director and Marketing Director for the National Council for Hypnotherapy, explained how hypnotherapy could help, “All the therapists at the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy are CNHC registered which is the Department of Health appointed regulator for Hypnotherapy. We help people to reduce and conquer their anxiety on a daily basis and, of which, a large percentage are teenagers. Hypnotherapy offers a brief effective therapy that could be used to pick up the shortfall in local government services.”

As well as helping people remove anxiety, the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy is renowned for helping clients to lose weight, stop smoking and control problem behaviours such as alcohol and drugs.

They also provide high quality hypnotherapy training which is practical, simple and very effective. This enables hundreds of their graduates to leave the Institute with an internationally recognised qualification, and gives them the skills to set up in practice immediately after the course and so help many more people around the country.

The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy has been practising in Wallington, Surrey since 2001. They have specialists that work with weight, anxiety, depression, problem behaviours and psoriasis. All their therapists are accredited by The National Council for Hypnotherapy.
